Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has spent a significant amount of time on his number one rated primetime cable news show bashing Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate who still somehow believes she’s the rightful winner of the 2018 election.
But according to The Hill, what Carlson did on his Friday show was an entirely new level of comedic commentary. After bringing his viewers up to speed that Abrams was a romance novelist prior to her failed attempt at politics, Carlson had one of his producers do a dramatic reading of one of her more salacious novels, and to say it was hilarious would be a massive understatement.
The Fox News host told his audience that one of his producers tracked down her 2006 novel, “Hidden Sins.”
“Now, most of the novel is a mystery, and, to be honest, we didn’t really follow the plot line,” Carlson said. “That’s not because the writing was bad. Oh, no, no, no. this is Amanda Gorman-level stuff,” referring to the young poet who performed a reading at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
As one of his senior producers began reading excerpts from the novel as music played softly in the background, Carlson cut in several times to offer his take. “She tormented his flesh with her palms. We were tormented as we read it,” Carlson said.
He concluded his take on the spicy novel by saying, “The book is called ‘Hidden Sins,’ and, frankly, we feel we’ve just sinned in public. You can have that feeling too for the low low price of just $7.”
Carlson’s hilarious take on Abrams’ books comes in the wake of publisher Berkley announcing earlier in the week that three of her romance novels, which were written under one of her pen names, will be reissued next year, according to The Hill.
Abrams has enough of a fan base on the left at this point that a career in publishing novels might very well make for a wiser career path than continuing to pursue her political ambitions.
